Just a dried seed head.

9th December 2012: This image, for reasons I can’t easily explain, brings to mind photographing next year’s marsh fox cubs. It might be the image light level, the blue sky and the encroaching foliage. Having sufficient light in a dense wood is always a challenge when looking down at a fox den from the branches of a nearby tree.

      • I hope that you do too! I enjoy reading about the hunt for the den, regardless 🙂

      • I found a newly cleared hole in the ground on Saturday. I went down on my hands and knees to check it out. While brushing away the stray dirt from around the hole, I heard a growl and a fox’s jaws snapped at my fingers. Luckily, I was faster than the fox. I should have had my goatskin gloves on. One day an animal hiding down a hole will succeed in biting me, and it will be my own fault for not taking proper precautions.

      • The lesson here is not to put your fingers in unfamiliar holes, you never know what might be lurking in there; at least, wear some protection. There might have been a ferret or a polecat down the hole, and both are faster than me. 🙂
